This weekend Mark and I took a mini holiday to Palm Springs.
It was needed and then some!
We joined my cousin Sheli, her wonderful manfriend Caleb, their pup Koa and my wonderfully, lovable Uncle Ed at a rented home there. Together we had one of those magically epic weekends you dream and wish to have. We relaxed, reminisced, ate well, played in the sun and enjoyed Uncle's stories. The man is a human encyclopedia (a Google Man for all the youngins in the house.)
I'm reading this delicious book right now that whispered to me at just the right time, too. (This is yet another reason this was the perfect adventure...since no good one exists without some sort of book.) Today while driving back to LA I read the following passage:
"Hmmm what did you miss... A celebrity did drugs. A politician disagreed. A different celebrity wore a bikini that revealed a bodily imperfection. A team won a sports event, but another lost."
The words made me smile to myself. Yes, I briefly thought about the words I needed to write, the laundry, my chores, yadda yadda, but it was fleeting worry. I missed nothing, really. I was exactly where I was supposed to be when I was supposed to be there. It's glorious when you figure that part out.
That's when you learn your life is pretty swell, you stick your head out the car window and smile at the sun.
